Mtl Youth Internship Program 2014
We believe that participating in God's mission in the world demands that we engage with young people with honesty and integrity, recognizing their particular developmental and spiritual needs. That’s why we’ve created a new and exciting internship program that will allow you to explore your faith in a very tangible way. Through this program, you will gain first-hand experience of working in a community ministry, the diocesan office and a parish. You will then go on to share the story of your experience with the diocese and beyond, in order to inspire and motivate others.

The Anglican churches in Montreal would like to know how to better support parents, be they church-goers, members of other faith communities, “spiritual-but-not-religious”, or just curious about this dimension of human life. We want to know how people are meeting the spiritual needs of their families and what kinds of questions they may be asking – not because we have answers but because we have questions, too.
If you are a parent, please take a minute to fill out the survey.

Elizabeth Robertson, MTL Youth
It’s a quiet spot, just far enough from the city to feel like you’re truly away. The Manoir d’Youville sits on a small peninsula in Châteauguay. The only things around it are ice, the roaring water under the ice, and a small nature preserve. It’s a perfect spot to get away and reset your brain.
And that’s exactly what we did during the Youthwork 101 training weekend organized by MTL Youth. Youth workers from the Dioceses of Montreal and Ottawa got together to take a closer look at how we do youth ministry. We also contemplated an even more important question… why do we do it?

A national event for clergy under the age of forty, "Conversation 2014" will be held in Montreal this coming June! conversation2014-map
This year's Ontario Summer Training Institute for Church Leaders is designed to offer not just inspiration and new understanding of Christ’s call in our changed and changing context, but most especially, practical help in answering that question, “How?”. In this workshop, we will explore how we can shift our congregational mindset from one of, “How can we fix the church?”, to one of, “How can we be the presence of Jesus in the presence of ‘the other’?”, and re-learn the ‘practices of belonging’ ourselves, so that we can then turn out from ourselves toward the communities God loves, in which we live.
